About pre-ordering The Last of Us on PSN.....

[ Edited ]
8 replies 269 views Edited Jun 8, 2013

I have pre-ordered the game on PSN (which is the first time I digitally pre-order a geme btw) and all I have in my download list is a pre-order static theme. I guess I'll have to download the game on the release date then, but my friend in Hong Kong says that he has a game downloader about 137MB in size and with which he can already download the game right now and wait for it to be unlocked on the 14th. So is this feature unique to Hong Kong PSN or am I missing something in my purchase....

 

Here's the picture of the downloader that my friend showed me...

I may be wrong, but I do not think we have it. I have actually never heard of PSN having this feature regardless of region. I would guess you will have to have fun downloading the 26gb of TLOU on the 14th! Enjoy!

Sounds like a Hong Kong thing. On the 14th, at midnight, they will be releasing the game though, and it includes a special downloader that will allow you to play it once it has hit the halfway point.

 

Edit: And you're sure your friend isn't BSing you? For the God of War TLOU demo, I had the same downloader with the same screen. Took forever...

So I'll have to download 13GB of stuff before I can play.... Well better than having to download the full game I suppose, but I wonder why they only have this function in Hong Kong, it seems to be more useful than the "download-while-play" one if you pre-order....

I have comfirmed this with several Hong Kong PSN users, and there is no reason they all would be kidding me......

Well guess what I just found on the Hong Kong PSN site:

 

Important Notices
Full Game
• The initial download size for this game is approx. 200MB. A larger download is then required.
• The larger download will begin immediately, but the game will not become playable until June 14th 3:01pm Hong Kong Time

Question, and im only asking for the sake of logic.

Why would you pre-order a game that you're going to buy as a digital download?

 

Kind of defeats the purpose....
